RE: What does it mean when the vinyl pressing is labeled 'audiophile'?

if you compare one of the other 2012 LPs with its mono equivalent from, was it 2015?, and then to either mono or stereo UK pressings, including 1970s black and silver label analogue mastered ones, you will immediately hear why the 2012 remasterings are inferior and what an opportunity was lost.

I have a 2012 Sgt Pepper's mono 180 g remastered LP. Compared to my lowly Canadian pressing (all scratched and abused), this much ballyhooed 'audiophile' 180 gram remaster sucks donkey balls. The scratched old Sgt Pepper's beats the new one by a country mile.

Same conclusions regarding Revolver mono (although I have an original Capitol pressing from the '60s which omits "I'm Only Sleeping" and "And Your Birds Can Sing"). The original Revolver sounds like thermonuclear power plant exploding compared to the tame and prim and proper new Revolver mono pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
